Masters Stay 2014

4.2 on April 16, 2014

This was a great experience for our first B&B stay. We were pleasantly surprised and the service from Jeanne and her staff was beyond amazing/room was very clean. The commute to Augusta was not to bad however there was not much to do in Washington so we spent a lot of time during the day away from the B&B exploring other towns. I would stay here again and recommend this place to anyone who wants a quiet get away.

Very Pleasant Stay

4.4 on May 14, 2013

We stayed in the separate quarters at a location near the inn. It was clean, well appointed, peaceful with beautiful grounds.....Next morning we went to the main inn a few streets away where we had a most generous breakfast with our delightful hostess.....One thing to remember....If you drive a large vehicle watch out for the left turn into the inn. It is tight and we hooked our truck into the protruding stone wall. Stone wall won of please be careful. There is a street directly across from the entrance so you can drive straight between the stone problem....

The Masters Week Stay

3.8 on April 28, 2013

I had friends from out of town come to Atlanta so we could all go to the Masters practice round on Tuesday. Two Couples. We wanted to shorten our drive the morning of the day in Augusta so we lucked out and found Jean's place in Washington. This is a town that takes a step back in time, a movie setting, with it's one classic hotel and one restaurant (very good) in the square and dotted with 1800's classic homes. It was a WOW experience when we pulled in the driveway. Gorgeous place and elegantly appointed inside. The rooms were large and both came with large hot tubs, so nice. Jean spent some time telling us about her connection with the house and we then walked into town for late dinner. Wonderful restaurant btw. My only drawback was the sheets, which I'm fussy about. I'm used to 600-800 cotton sheets and these lacked that softness. The old bed tended to squeek with any movement also. Otherwise, two thumbs up to Southern Elegance and Jean!! (We left early so I can't comment on breakfast)

Innkeeper Response
After this guest let it was brought to my attention that the bed in the Ozella room was squeaking and indeed it was due to a loose bolt in the headboard connecting the the side rail this has been corrected and no more squeaking bed.Thank you for letting me know. As for the sheet it's not practical or affordable to use 600 to 800 thread count sheets in $135.00 a night room we use 450 and consider our price a good value considering other establishments charge considerable more during Master's week for far less amenities. We are always disappointed when we fail to meet our guests' expectations. When we started 8 years ago we did use higher thread count sheets but due to the high incident of customers ruining sheets we could no longer afford to do so and maintain our rates. I operate a sister facility that offers very luxurious amenities and are priced accordingly $185.00-$250.00 per night for those guest seeking more luxury this might be an options.Thanks for giving us the opportunity to improve our service.

Home away from home

Our honeymoon and it was great. The Venetian Suite was beautiful and perfect for the occasion. We will definitely recommend it.

Great Weekend Away

3.6 on April 30, 2012

If you are looking for a relaxing weekend away to enjoy some of the historical aspects of Georgia, then a trip to Washington is in order. The B&B run by Jeanne is very good...with lots of charm and great service.

100 year old Bed & Breakfast

5 on April 18, 2012

We were there for the Masters Tournament, We had to leave really early in the morning to get to the tournament when it opened. Our host prepared us a to go breakfast since we were leaving before the normal breakfast was served. That was very nice of her to make sure we had food for the road. If we are able to get Master's tickets again we would definitley return.

Outstanding B&B

5 on March 20, 2012

Not only is it 5 star in every way, but the hostess is absolutely the "mosetest"! A wonderful cook and makes you feel so welcome in her lovely home. Also, there are guest cottages behind the big house that are sometimes rented for a weekend. Great experience and centrally located in downtown historic Washington. Jeanne's home is your home while you are there... Carolyn
